I'm not sure which menus\ways you are trying to turn off CC, especialy since I don't use subtitles, but page 72 of the manual shows that when the video plays you press the Q Menu button and go to Set Video play and the settings are called Subtitle Language and Language. Give that a shot and let us know.

Is there a hack or something that can be done to watch Amazon Prime movies without buying an Amazon stick? I thought this TV had an Amazon app but when I tried to watch an Amazon Prime movie the other day the app wasn't there anymore. I do have a Chromecast but apparently Amazon Prime doesn't work with Chromecast.

Most of the time, I watch a 65" Panny plasma in the downstairs family room, but the PQ of this 47" LG always impresses me - one of the best buys I've ever made. Enjoy yours!
I came here to see if anyone could gauge how much the 55LW5600 could sell for these days, but now i'm curious to know what this THX mode is.

I don't see any info on it through a google search and i don't find it in any of my settings.

Anyone want to point me in the right direction please?

You can run a search on THX in this thread and find the info you're seeking.
For me, post# 5146 on page 172 of this thread was a good entry point to start learning more on this subject. Essentially, you can use a universal remote to access the service menu, in which you can navigate to some otherwise hidden settings, such as for THX picture modes. I have the 47LW5600 and I made these settings changes back in 2012, so I no longer recall much of the tech details, including whether it will work on your 55" model.

When in doubt, do the right thing.

It will work on the 55" model. I have that model and did the universal remote trick mentioned and was able to activate the THX modes. They are a nice feature to have. I have also used the settings found in this topic to fine tune the picture. I have had them set that way for awhile now and really like the picture.

I've been searching past hour and only running into calibration settings which i have been toying around with, but no mention on how i get to the service menu with my harmony remote or what to do when i get there to turn THX on...

EDIT: So i've found instructions on how to turn them on, but i still have no clear instructions how to get to the service menu. I have a harmony 700 remote.
This here perfectly describes what to do http://beau.org/~jmorris/linux/lg-hacking/ez-adjust.txt but conveniently leaves out how i actually get to the service menu. Is this something illegal that i won't find online or something? I search and search, but find no clear answers or instructions.

I believe there's no single post that has everything needed, so you will need to search and read thru many posts in this thread. There is a post on page 170 that provides a link to a wiki page that I recall using for learning how to access the service menu using a cheap universal-type RCA remote. You may also need to scan thru posts from page 170 to 185 or so to gather in all the relevant info. For example, what one person offered in earlier posts may have since changed or been corrected in later posts. As an example (IIRC), early on it was believed that once you activated the THX modes, the PQ settings were frozen at those THX values. Later on, it was discovered that you can enter a code (maybe 08471 or something) that opens up the THX PQ settings for more adjustments. This is the type of info that spans across the various posts on accessing the service menu and making settings changes. I think I pondered doing this for about 3 weeks before I felt confident that I understood the procedures...and risks.
Perhaps other members will offer better info on this subject.
